    You’re too self-righteous, arrogant and judgmental. You turn people away from God. You should be more humble, patient and loving with people, like Jesus was.

    You are also a sinner.

    ..He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. (John 8:7).

    If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. (1John 1:8).

    Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin? (Proverbs 20:9).

      Thank you so much for visiting the website, and leaving a comment. If you read some of the comments, you should have observed that I approve comments that are of an encouragement and also comments from those who disagree. And I really appreciate that you included Bible verses in your comment, and I wish that were a more common practice. From your public comment I don’t know whether you are a Christian or not, and I don’t know if we have ever met or talked or if you have ever listened to what I preach. Therefore it is unclear why you are so critical of my life, demeanor, or methods. Have we ever met?
      As for your comments; if you are opposed to being judgmental, I would suggest you reread your own comment. If words were stones I think you have certainly stoned me with your comments. Neither the Bible nor Jesus nor the prophets forbid judging, but would only admonish us to be cautious and only to judge righteously (according to the revealed will of God) and not to judge by appearance or in hypocrisy.)
      Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment.” – John 7:24
      “You shall do no injustice in court. You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor. – Leviticus 19:15
      “And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right? – Luke 12:57

      Do you not know that we are to judge angels? How much more, then, matters pertaining to this life! – 1 Corinthians 6:3
      If I have been arrogant im my communication with you, I have been in sin, but if we have never met, I wonder then how you came to this conclusion. My thought is that arrogance is based on feeling rather than action. For example when Jesus clears out the temple with a whip, it may “appear “ (angry or arrogant,) but by studying Jesus life, most would say He had a righteous anger.
      With regard to being humble, patient, and loving people, I pray for an increase in those fruits each day; and if it be that you are a Christian I ask you to pray that I would be more and more humble, patient and loving. To be more like Jesus would not only be (meek and lowly in heart), but also to call sinners to repentance, to rebuke even men like Peter, James, John, the Pharisees, and the cities like Capernaum and Chorazin
      “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it will be more bearable in the judgment for Tyre and Sidon than for you. And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? You shall be brought down to Hades. – Luke 10:13-15
      As for the accusation that I am self-righteous, I have only a confession that in my flesh there is no good thing, and a profession that I have by God’s grace been given the Righteousness of Christ. Though you may call me a sinner God sees me in Christ, and He sees not my sin because He has blotted out my sin, and God doesn’t call me a sinner, He calls me a saint .
      To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be (saints) together with (all those who in every place) call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours: – 1Cor 1:2
      And I say not that “I have no sin” but instead I trust in this, that, because my salvation has been accomplished by the finished work of Jesus. Christ, when I confess my sin, He is faithful not only to forgive my sins but to cleanse me of all unrighteousness, hence I can say “He has cleansed me and I am washed with the water and the Word.”
      Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. Eph5:25-27
      Jesus said to him, “The one who has bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet, but is completely clean. And you are clean, but not every one of you.” – John 13:10
      Finally with regards to turning people away, please read Eph 2:1-3. No one seeks after God.
      And he said, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father.” – John 6:65
      Thanks again for the comment. Please feel free to comment again. I hope that some of the verses I used in my answer might lead to more questions or considerations.
      If you still disagree I ask you to read Luke24vs47 , which is the foundation for this site…
      Grace be with all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with love incorruptible.
